I got this music for two young children who have been taking violin lessons for just one year. The youngest, a eight year old girl who had gotten a music box which played Bach's Lullaby wanted to know what the name of the music was, so I got the music for her, and she learned it in just two days. She and her 11 year old brother have been playing all of the music in this collection. They simply loved it.
While I like your website and many of the music here available is fine arrangment,as a violin- viola teacher I find myself out of luck when it comes to "very easy" collections. For example: Ave Maria, Entertainer, Jesu Joy, Mroning moods are not easy at all to begin with, never mind the key they are edited in. This is not at all for a beginner violinist. Seems like the arranger had not considered the technical, music theoritical progresson on a string instrument, which is totally different, lets say from the wind instruments.I do not recomend these arrangaments for beginners or late beginners eighter.

Great mix of tunes, a little from the assorted classical time frames.
